While it was the addition of legs to its VR avatars that made the headlines this week, Meta also announced a brand new version of its Oculus Quest headset, the Meta Quest Pro. It's a very sleek and very expensive upgrade over the existing Quest headsets – and I'm already terrified of it.

The new headset is the first to offer a"mixed reality" experience, blending the metaverse and the real world. It features goggle-like lenses that let the user view the world around them, and a 50% faster processor. Oh, and inward-pointing cameras that track your eye and face movements. (Not got into the VR game yet? Check out the best Meta Quest deals.) Meta's Horizon Worlds is a flagship virtual reality social space that is in open testing, it's led to some unusual Meta game design choices.
